Postico 2

The native Mac app for PostgreSQL
all new again

Download Buy Postico 2
Postico 2 is compatible with PostgreSQL 8.0 or later, Amazon Redshift, CockroachDB, Greenplum, and others.
Postico 2 requires macOS 10.15 or later. If you have an older Mac, we also have old versions of Postico available.
While Postico 2 is our latest and greatest version of Postico (see whats new in the changelog), we continue to support Postico 1.5.

A database app for users

Postico 2 is a database app with a very strong focus on its core audience: people who use databases. Our customers range from researchers and analysts to app developers and students. Whether you want to enter data, search data, or perform SQL queries, Postico has you covered.

Postico 2 is the next major version coming after Postico 1.5. If you'd like to know more about Postico 1.5, click here.

New: Multi-File Query Editor

The new SQL query editor makes working with a lot of queries easier than ever:

Data Entry, Editing, and Search

Click a table in the sidebar, and see the data instantly. Add rows, edit them, or filter them. Powerful features like the foreign key picker or the row detail sidebar make editing all kinds of tables a breeze.

Table Structure Editor

Postico has a powerful graphical structure editor for creating and altering tables. Add a column, edit data types, set a default value. Columns, indexes and constraints are unified in a single editor, so you see everything at once.

And the more technically inclined can view the structure as raw SQL (DDL view).

New: Function Editor

You can now edit functions and stored procedures.

New: Distraction-free Updates

Postico now updates silently in the background. We know that you have more important things on your mind than dealing with software updates. So unless you disable automatic updates, Postico will never interrupt you with an update notification again.

You can choose whether you want stable releases or development builds straight from our continuous integration system.

Improved: Connection Settings

The streamlined interface means that your servers are never more than two clicks away. Connection management in Postico 2 has been optimized for everyone, whether you use a single server, or hundreds of them:

Redshift, Greenplum, CockroachDB

Postico tries to support all PostgreSQL-compatible databases. In addition to PostgreSQL, we have first class support for Amazon Redshift, Greenplum, and CockroachDB.

Some databases like Vertica are supported only in a limited way: executing SQL is possible, but other features do not work.

New: Support & Feedback built in

Postico now has a dedicated "Feedback" button in the toolbar to send feedback or to request support. Postico will include relevant version numbers automatically, and optionally even include a screenshot of the current window. You can send feedback anonymously, or you can include your email address if you want us to get back to you.

Alternatively, you can continue to contact us via email ( or via our Github Issues page.
